McAuliffe says refugee ban will ‘breed hatred’ toward US

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is denouncing President Donald Trump's decision to suspend the nation's refugee program for four months and indefinitely bar Syrians from entering the country.

The Democrat said during a press conference at Dulles International Airport on Saturday that he has asked Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring to look into "all legal remedies" available to help individuals who may be detained in Virginia.

McAuliffe said he has heard that a family is being held at Dulles, but is trying to confirm that with federal officials.

McAuliffe called Trump's action "discriminatory," saying it will "breed hatred toward Americans around the globe."

Trump also instituted a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. by citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.

How does he know?  What an ignorant blowhard…


McAuliffe means the leader of Iran might be so angry that he will lead thousands of Iranians in a “death to America” chant? Oh, wait. They already did that! McAuliffe is such a putz.


The message from McAuliffe is this: Every nation is allowed to control its immigration, except the United States. 

Because someone might get upset with us.


refugees are already killing in Europe, what bread their hatred?
